I vote…

In one week every Luxembourgish citizen has to go vote to find a new government. It’s an obligation and everyone not showing up can be persecuted by the law. (Which, as far as I know of, has never happened.)

Usually, I have a good grasp of politics in my country, but this time, I wonder if I have to vote for bad or worse. But, I will not vote blank. I will make use of my vote, because in a country as small as Luxembourg, every vote counts to make a change.

Next week, I will spend researching everything in depth. I like our Prime Minister. At the same time, I really don’t like our Ministers of Family matters and the one in charge of education…

Politics and religion are topics I usually avoid. And in one week, I wrote about both.

Just another moment in my brain.

I am visiting my sister in Germany currently. She brought her kids to bed. I brought mine to bed. And now I am sitting here, looking out of the window, enjoying the view of an ancient castle.

Something beautiful

A very good friend send this to me this morning. And my first thought was: I want that for myself. Even when I am carrying my burdens, I want them to look like wings. Really beautiful. But I don’t have a source to quote here. The interwebs are a blessing and a curse.


I love this song. I know… Radiohead is a bit of a cliché. Just like with Pink Floyd it took me a while to get them and truth be told, I am still not that big a fan, but I own 4 or 5 of their albums. (Of course, I do…)

This is my favourite cover of this song:

Ever heard about Nate Maingard? Great man, I like him a lot. Though, I believe that his honesty and openness, his raw approach to everything he does may not be every one’s cup of tea. He is on patreon and you can find home on http://nate.live

Be curious… You know you want it,

Big hugs,


Dilemma of the day:

I lost my favourite CD. I always put my CDs back in their case. But it is not there… I was looking anywhere I can think of… Even in other cases. But I cannot find it. I am sure it is somewhere… I am contemplating to buy it again. :-/


I started listening to music when I was a child. While other children were playing, I was listening to music… I was not allowed to go outside to play. I often considered music to be my life saving device. It certainly kept my mind off things. And it taught me the English language. I am an emotional person and I react to music. Some songs touch me deeply whereas others don’t get to me at all.

The first song is one of those songs who never really inspired me in any way. Not good, not bad. I often have the line “And it feels like I’m flying above you” in my head.

Anathema – Flying

This song is from a live concert, probably one of the best I have ever seen and I only saw the DVD. I have a very special bond with this band. Its music found me at a time when I was a lost teenager. I felt a little more found with Anathema’s music. A feeling I had until I was well in my thirties…


Her Name is Calla – Meridian Arc

This song is my ringtone. A couple of weeks ago I had a notification on Facebook that I earned a badge as a Top Fan. I have no idea why. Apart from the fact that I try to support this band as much as I can. Great people. Best huggers in the world.


I hope you enjoy both these songs, as always, I would like to hear your thoughts about them.

Thank you and have a great week,
